On Sunday, the 22nd, Earth Day, right after breakfast, Violet gave birth to a single kid. The baby was huge, as big as her week-old cousins. Like all the rest, she was on her feet within ten minutes. We waited, but no twin came. When we peeked under her tail, we high-fived: another doeling! Her name is Vervain. Now she is three days old, and in a break between dramatic rain and (sigh) snow showers today, she joined her herd outside for the first time.

Vervain was timid for a few minutes, but she was soon ready to explore.
